He's HighNeilM said:Sorry to be late responding to this, but I guess it's a matter of location as well. True, the service does include going over the bike with a microscope, but my dealer's service charge is $250 for every service until the first valve adjustment, then it goes up. My Boulevard C50 is only $180 for the first serviceing.
ok neil tell me one thing for starters. i have the an650 and at 50 mpg i get 3 days on a tank of gas. what is the mpg on ea. 400 you have and how many gallons do the hold. also do you happen to know how far you can go with ea. bike on a tank of gas. i'm looking to get 200 miles per fill up. either bike can work for me but the 650 is getting by stopping every 3 days to put gas in it. and i'm not crazy about the ride. my old helix had a much better ride. bp.NeilM said:I have a Majesty and my wife rides a Burgman 400s. Most of the difference is personal choice. The Majesty sits higher and at 5"11" I can rarely put my feet flat on the ground. The Burgman seat is lower and foot stance is no problem. Another seat issue is that the Burman line has a back rest that pushes you forward to a smaller section of the seat. If you like plenty of seat space, the Majesty is a better choice.The tire size doesn't really seem to make one better than the other so I wouldn't count this a decision maker. It's more a matter of looks. the Majesty is sleek, comfortable, great handling, and plenty of storage. The Burgman has more of the profile of a crotch rocket motorcycle, but still has the storage, overall comfort, and good ride.
